8:21 pm
if you criticize israel or the jewish people are you a racist anti-semitic it's more the ok's labor leader jeremy call been under pressure is the fuse the route for now but the question remains what exactly does the semitism mean this is inside story.
8:22 pm
hello and welcome to the program. the definition of a system it isn't has long been a dividing topic it's commonly used to describe hostility to words or discrimination against jews as a religious or racial group but what's considered discriminative is disputed thirty one countries have a doctor the definition by the international holocaust when members of alliance. a it includes eleven examples of anticipated behavior not everyone agrees on them and the shoe has engulfed the u.k.'s labor party in iraq for months its leader jeremy corbyn has been accused of holding anti semitic views on tuesday he bowed under mounting pressure to adopt the full definition of a but with a coffee at laws leigh reports. can you say what he wants to about israel without being accused of hating jews these people who support jeremy colvin believe it is entirely legitimate to condemn israel as institutionally racist. without being
8:23 pm
cautious as races themselves we need to proceed you know i mean this is a party that can become the party of government and we can discuss matters of foreign policy the rights of the palestinians to their own self-determination they the suffering that the palestinians are experiencing at the hands of israel we can discuss that in the labor party because it will be defined as anti semitic. jericho god but these british jews friends of israel said that his bigotry fascism and even the jewish people at the moment everybody i know is considering leaving the country young people are leaving the country i know loads of young people in that twenty's have gone to israel and you know jeremy corbin looks if he's going to become a prime minister you will see a stream of jewish people leaving the united kingdom that has to be terrible. of
8:24 pm
the whole of it was labour's refusal to accept several examples of anti semitic language and views as defined by the international holocaust remembrance alliance or i h r a it is deemed anti semitic to say for instance the jews are more loyal to israel than their own country or that the state of israel is by definition racists or that israeli government policy is like those of nazi germany colvin and his supporters have claimed this prevented them from properly criticizing israel's actions towards the palestinian people. under huge pressure to adopt the i.h.r. a code the policy executive finally did but also reserve the right to criticize israel even the deputy party leader didn't seem convinced or somebody said that the first rail is a racist endeavor now will they be disciplined by the labor party look the the cabbie i said what he says you could make your own mind up critics will accuse the labor party of trying to play with words in this supposed compromise what is the difference between criticizing israel and expressing support for the palestinians
8:25 pm
and court. sizing israel's actions towards the palestinians one might not be anti-semitic one might be open to interpretation and certainly it is not the unequivocal backing of the anti semitism codes that many labor politicians have been demanding thanks to the danger in this for cool thing is that in trying to keep his political party happy he will have upset his grassroots supporters who want to say what they like to see about israel this decision may not have cleared up anything more recently al jazeera london. let's bring in our panel joining us in london we have emma force the national organizer of the students' bias program attender jackson society sarah glynn join us from dunn de scotland via skype she is a member of the scottish jews against zionism and from tel aviv gideon levy
8:26 pm
a calmness with haaretz welcome to the program emma how significant is the labor party's vote well i think that it is significant i think it's thirty disappointing that the i actually are a definition of anti semitism couldn't be adopted in full i think the criticisms of the definition are wildly unfounded. i think that whilst this could be seen as a step in the right direction i think through the sort of cavity ads that jeremy corbyn wanted to put forward in addition to the definition has sort of undermined the entire process and again has sort of stuck it to the jewish community and told them that he actually doesn't care about them and then science said sarah would this help the party in move beyond the and to submit is of
8:27 pm
controversy that has been going on for quite some time i don't think anything that could be done now is going to any concession to what's essentially bullying designed to get rid of all i left has to do. what they see in its weaknesses and they're going to push further i think it was interesting that your previous speaker talked about process because i don't think it's anything to do with anti-semitism. it is a proto saying all. that willing if it wasn't anti-semitism to be something else gideon we seem to be having now some sort of. mixed reactions was the those by labor party how do you see it. i think that the israeli propaganda and the jewish community are mixing the liberals to the between genuine criticism about israel
8:28 pm
about zionism about the occupation and anti semitic isn't and they're doing saw it's not new is there all the weapon of israel to paralyze any kind of criticism about is an order of patients that is i think that this will continue because it is very efficient because it did paralyze many israeli critics in the world believe labeling them as n.t. semites is no reason anna you said that it's fine with adopting the i it's a definition but no to the car vs particular the one which talks about freedom of expression when it comes to israel and the support for the rights of the policy is why should you be concerned we plainly says that this should not prompt us from saying things for what what they are. i think essentially by caviar
8:29 pm
saying that the irish are a definition with this little phrase about freedom of speech inherently just says that what the definition does for have that freedom of speech and criticism of the israeli government and israeli policy and that is not what the definition does and the idea that the protection of jewish the jewish community is in any way to do with the occupation or to do with people having the right to speak out. and protest campaign against the israeli government is absurd and i think that it's really undermining to put this on necessary kavya at the end of the definition of racism and i think it shows a complete disregard for the concerns of the jewish community center how do you respond to the growing criticism that we've seen over the last year. by vigilance
8:30 pm
community in the u.k. about the saying that they were basically undermining the very basic tenets of the jewish community. well. there is an irish community there are many jewish communities and there are many get through here is from within you yes and actually the essence of it because there are suggestions in. examples that go with the definition doesn't do conflate zionism with judaism and not told you is the point i mean of course not all scientific theories either. everybody interesting example your career you speak of china as well examples about criticising its ready government long it doesn't allow for criticism . the idea at all scientists and of the scientists and of the state civic.
8:31 pm
one ethnic or religious group in front of. mr levy carbons political career has never been an easy one now after this vote this is this something which with positions him as the uncontested leader of the left in the u.k. absolutely and try to be so and therefore i think people of conscious leftist and people of conscience people who care about human rights people talking about just these especially in the middle east should cross the fingers and the whole that he would be one day very soon hopefully the next prime minister of the united kingdom because he really presents something else and he needed presents a real hope when hope is sorer in this part of the world i think that someone who would talk in a different language and tire different languages in the language of being
8:32 pm
conscious in english of justice of equality this language we have missing here in the middle east so much and if the. this will happen i think it's almost miracle is it really really hoping that this will happen and many supporters of the labor party in particular say the reason why you and many other people criticize him criticize his legacy of the whole and to submit his own thing is because the man has been staunchly defending the bites of the palestinians store sizing israel's politics yeah i would just like to say that i've really dispute the fact that the jewish community expressing concern over a hatred towards them somehow disregards their. concern and compassion towards the palestinians towards any other type of group or conflict this definition is entirely about racism towards the jewish community and is not about
8:33 pm
lack of compassion towards a conflict or any other type of. or any type other type of issue goes on and again i think the idea that the corbin because he covers a lot of the anti semitic stances or associates that he is how did the past as purpose to me and activism is appalling and i think we would need to distinguish this fact the reason why the jewish community are very concerned with corbin's actions is not towards the fact that he's showing support for the palestinians and their struggle which we many jews feel too but it's his associates it's the hosting of of anti semites it's his support for terrorist groups with genocidal intent towards the jewish community and it is it is these things that are really way to concerning not any type of.
